One UI in 2023
Samsung started 2023 with the unveiling of the One UI 5.1 in early February. Within a month of launch, the company shared this S23-exclusive firmware with older Galaxy devices such as the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, and Galaxy Note 20 as well as Galaxy Fold and Flip series.
At the August Unpacked, Samsung will introduce the next One UI iteration – One UI 5.1.1. This new software will also be based on the Android 13 operating system. However, it will bring some additional tweaks and multitasking enhancements for large-screen devices.
Later this year, Samsung would unveil the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 firmware for Galaxy devices. It would take about three months for the company to test, adopt and optimize the new OS for Galaxy devices. Accordingly, the One UI 6.0 rollout is expected to start by October 2023.
